    [synopsis] => A smart, gritty examination of the lives of touring musicians
Here Goes Nothing, Eamon McGrath's brave second offering and follow-up to 2017's widely acclaimed Berlin-Warszawa Express, once again explores the world of touring musicians - but this time McGrath expands his scope and perspective from the inner dialogue of a traveling songwriter into the wider range of a multi-member touring band.
Told in two interwoven narratives that blur the lines between past and present, Here Goes Nothing explores the complex relationships that are both created and destroyed by the perpetual-motion engine that is the touring van.
From confessional tales of saving friends and oneself from drowning in polluted lakes in Michigan to legendary liver-wrecking nights of excess and debauchery in Lisbon, McGrath comments on the corrupt and selfish music industry and the toll it takes on musicians as they blindly chase success. Here Goes Nothing is a gutsy story of how life on the road can bring a band together - or tear them wildly apart. Here Goes Nothing is about the complex relationships that are created and destroyed by a band's touring experience. McGrath's second novel explores the corrupt and selfish nature of the music industry and ultimately offers a courageous story of how the road can bring people together while also tearing them apart. Seven full-length records, multiple continent-spanning tours, and a critically acclaimed work of fiction lay in the wake of 31-year-old Eamon McGrath, whose fierce attitude and work ethic has led him to develop a career that could rival anyone 20 years his senior. He is based in Toronto, Ontario.
The four of us had a superstition at the time that you could never clean the van until the tour was over, so by the time we'd sling-shotted around the Golden Horseshoe and crossed the border westward towards home, we were up to our necks in an ocean of garbage. It was the same in our minds as shaving your playoff beard. Stained blankets, liquor bottles, half-eaten bags of potato chips, old rotten food, filthy blankets, sleeping bags, and who knows what else, formed a cemented, solidified wall around your body as you sat in the seat.

Whenever we'd pull up to a venue, a river of beer cans and empty two-sixes would come rushing out of the shotgun side door as it opened, like a sacrilegious baptism. For every cardinal sin we'd commit before, during, or after a show, we'd have that sacred half-hour onstage every night to seek forgiveness. Despite the harrowing feeling of guilt deep inside me, for every poor, desperate gas station attendant running horizontal through the rain, I knew that there'd be countless times I'd be back in Ottawa, and all those cities that we'd passed through to get there, in no time, to be redeemed.
Short Description. Here Goes Nothing is about the complex relationships that are created and destroyed by a band's touring experience. McGrath's second novel explores the corrupt and selfish nature of the music industry and ultimately offers a courageous story of how the road can bring people together while also tearing them apart.
